We imagine this story went something like, “Congratulations, you won a $380,000 Lamborghini! Drive safely!” Unfortunately for a Utah man who won the sports car in a convenience store chain’s contest, his post-win joy rides cost him his prize.
The Associated Press says the man won a lime green Murcielago Roadster from Maverik stores’ “Joe Schmo to Lambo” contest. The “schmo” part is right, as David D. took pals and family for a few too many spins in the car. During one ride, the car hit ice or gravel, went into a spin and hit some fence posts before finally stopping in a field.
The Lamborghini suffered front-end damage, a punctured wheel and scratches along the passenger side, but David says no one was injured and luckily, the vehicle is insured.
“He also says he’ll be more careful next time,” reports the AP.
You know, for the next time he wins a ridiculously expensive sports car in a convenience store contest.
